Metabolics Iodine (as Potassium Iodide) 500 ml
- Iodine is necessary for normal thyroid functioning and making thyroid hormones.
Potassium iodide is a compound routinely added to salt to iodize it.
Potassium iodide is a source of iodine frequently taken by people exposed to radioactive iodine from leaking nuclear reactors such as Fukushima in Japan. Radioactive iodine results from uranium atoms split apart after being struck by a neutron in a nuclear reactor. The thyroid gland cannot differentiate between radioactive iodine and stable non-radioactive iodine Potassium iodide so potassium iodide taken before or shortly after iodine enters the body is absorbed by the thyroid gland resulting in less radioactive iodine being absorbed. So Potassium iodide does not neutralise radiation it simply prevents any more radioactive iodine being absorbed. Although much of the radioactive iodine will be eliminated from the body in a matter of weeks, the radiation can have a very damaging effect on the tissues resulting in genetic mutations.
Potassium Iodide is for people looking to maintain a healthy thyroid.
